The Tartan 30 has a big deep cockpit and sails well. It would be tight for 4 overnight, but with kids probably ok until they get older. Singlehanding in any of these boats can be a challange since all are old and tend to lack self tailing winches, control lines to the cockpit etc. Finding one in good shape with the right upgrades can be a challenge. The T 30 was offered with a tall rig which has some advantages in light air.
